Recently renovated and done to high standard decoration and high quality fixtures and furniture. Owners still work the farm and are such a lovely couple who will also have a chat and give plenty of advice of places to visit.

Very well equipped , comfortable, warm, light ,and very helpful owners. An interesting location (Watery Lane was certainly watery ) and the noise from approaching aircraft to Bristol Airport was not intrusive. A good base from which to visit Chew and the many surrounding villages , all with their 20mph speed limits !

A fabulously well equipped cottage with high quality fixtures and fittings. Beautifully situated in a quiet valley amongst sheep and horses. The owners were most welcoming and helpful and we loved watching the collies going about their business. The homemade biscuits provided upon arrival were truly delicious. We will certainly return.

This is beautifully situated and appointed cottage. It was perfectly clean and the owner Robert was so welcoming and friendly.. we had some amusing conversations with him.

We loved this cottage, it's gorgeous inside and out. The pictures don't do it justice. It has everything you could possibly want for a nice country break. The hosts are very welcoming, the kids loved seeing the farm animals and tractors. Highly recommended. We will be back next year hopefully.

The perfect house for a cosy and private stay. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the house and spacious garden. Robbert could not have been more helpful(try his meat!). Close to airport and Bristol but in a rural, quiet and beautiful area. The house is finished with great care and lacks nothing. Perfect, 10 out of 10.

The house is in a beautiful location, rural and yet only 8 minutes from the airport! It was the perfect setting for our "family reunion" - we live in Wales and my mum and sisters came by plane from Italy and Portugal. The house is very cosy (lovely wood stove!), spotless and charming. And the hosts' kindness is simply remarkable! It was perfect, 10Read more out of 10! Hide

What a great location! It's close to Bristol but still in a very quiet, rural area. You see about one vehicle a day on the road it's on. Fantastic, friendly hosts who live on the farm nearby. I would highly recommend to anyone.
